Sudan's dung beetles


Signed and numbered limited edition of 12

11 x 14 x 14cms

These beetles were observed and made during my time sculpting Sudan, the last male northern white rhino from life in Kenya. Over the months sculpting Sudan I saw how many small species share a symbiotic relationship with mega fauna, such as rhino,  so their extinction will impact on a whole ecosystem. To the Ancient Egyptians the dung beetle or scarab beetle was seen as a symbol of the heavenly cycle, representing the idea of rebirth and regeneration.
